New Year New Semester

I have had a great two weeks off.  I am really excited about what is coming next semester.  This is the point where things get interesting.  I get to finally start taking CT scans as well as start reading and interpreting.  I’m more excited about the reading and interpreting part.  One of my weakest points… Continue reading New Year New Semester

The End of My First Semester

It has been an incredible ride this first semester.  I finished my last day yesterday and I am glad to report that everything went smoothly.  The last few weeks were crunch time as far as I’m concerned.  It is interesting going from private practice to having to study for finals again.  You can’t help but… Continue reading The End of My First Semester

Anyway, the semester is essentially jumping from one class to the next and all of… Continue reading Gaining Traction

Pathology, Physics, Biostatistics and What?… There’s more?

This semester is quickly starting to gain traction.  Between all of these classes I have a feeling I will start pulling out my own hair.  That being said, I am truly enjoying the residency and the learning experience. Honestly, there is so much involvement in radiology I am surprised that the dental model hasn’t been… Continue reading Pathology, Physics, Biostatistics and What?… There’s more?

Learning to Write

Part of my coursework is a class that discusses research methodology.  Essentially, it is the art of writing research papers and conducting research.  I have learned how to apply for grants, come up with a thesis and design a study.  Interesting, even if ultimately research will not be my area of interest.  At least I… Continue reading Learning to Write
